A Royal Night Out:
The film is about one perfect, glorious evening in the lives of two real-life princesses. They are Elizabeth and Margaret Windsor, and the night is 8 May 1945, V-E Night. The whole of London is on the streets to celebrate the official end of WWII in Europe. It is known the young princesses, aged 19 and 14, slipped out of the palace to join the communal euphoria and went dancing at the Ritz. They apparently returned to Buckingham Palace just after midnight. Directed by acclaimed UK director Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane, Brideshead Revisited), this affectionate ‘what-if’ period drama about the adventures of the future Queen and her sister is a delightful affair.

When Marnie Was There:
The newest animation from Studio Ghibli is a moving story of female friendship. Sent from her foster home to a sleepy town by the sea, Anna dreams her days away among the marshes. She believes she’s outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong – and shuts herself off from everyone around her. Anna, however, never expected to meet a friend like Marnie. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than she begins to wonder about her newfound friend’s intentions. Based on the novel by Joan G. Robinson, When Marnie Was There is the second feature film by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty).
